Florence & Pisa tours from La Spezia

This tour lasts approximately 9 hours.

There’s a reason they’re the most popular tourist destinations in Tuscany!
Come and let the incomparable architecture, art and history fill you with
appreciation for the creativity, ingenuity and fortitude of the human spirit.

First stop, the Leaning Tower of Pisa (1 hour from La Spezia)

Stopping here first thing in the day allows us to beat the crowds.

In the “Field of Miracles” you will find not only the world’s most famous bell tower but also the cathedral, baptistery and cemetery — all remarkable.

Make sure to bring your camera and see how creative you can be “holding up” the Leaning Tower! You can climb the Leaning Tower if you wish.
OPTIONAL, additional fee, must be pre-booked; children under 8 not permitted to climb.

Next, Florence (1 hour from Pisa)

Most of the day will be spent amongst the beauty of Florence, with highlights as follows:

  • The biggest names in fashion as well as unique, local boutiques

    (OPTIONAL, additional fee, must be pre-booked)
